After missing two days of running (I'll have to go back and fill in my excuses for those two days!), it was great to be able to get out and run this morning. When I woke up I got ready but saw that it was raining. I thought about running later when the rain might stop but then decided to just go ahead and run. I decided to run through town and out onto Brusselstraat which, if I had more time to run could have taken me all the way to Brussels. It was cloudy and cool but the rain had stopped by the time I started to run. The road was kind of busy to run on but had a decent bike lane and sometimes a sidewalk. On the other side of town it had some nice hills to run on:
I went out about 5.5 miles and then turned around, until finally I was back at the Leuven train station, just a half mile from where I was staying :
Inside, there is a stand that sells warm waffles, which were tempting me. This has been on my list for quite some time to go for a run and stop in the train station on the way back for a warm Belgian waffle:
I thought about not getting one but I had some money on me and realized maybe I would not get another chance, because life has a habit of getting in the way of your plans some time, so carpe diem!
Average pace: 8:32
